I dont think we have tried it at home. Again, as flat as he and the team looked, it was just an idea.
I can't fully wrap my brain around why we are so green dependent. Sure, he was a Norris candidate, a scoring machine, that chose to morph his game into a more sound defensive game. Yet, he was never in our shutdown pairing, oddly, if his defensive game was that good. He doesnt score hardly at all anymore, something he does when I think he is at his best. Add in that we have Gross err Wideman to help fill his shoes, who is no slouch. Carlson may be the one that is missing Green the most, but Bruce had been loading up his plate with top opposition in a shutdown role.
So it comes down to puck moving, right? How have Wides Carlson Alzner Hammer Sarge and the boys, managed to keep jobs, if they can't make a simple outlet pass? Fact is, they can and do. Some can skate too. Do we need Green for his D? Most those guys all got to where they are by playing D.
Maybe there is some intangible.
